Photo Essay: North Triangle Residents Resist Demolition



MANILA — Residents of Sitio San Roque, Barangay Bagong Pag-asa in Quezon City, clashes with the police and the National Housing Authority (NHA) demolition team when they were forced to leave their community early morning of September 23.

NHA officials have issued a seven-day notice for demolition of the community, which would give way to the Quezon City Central Business District (QC-CBD), a 256-hectare project that would supposedly put Quezon City, if not the entire country, “at the forefront of global investment and business interest.”

Ayala Land Inc., a big real estate company, has signed an agreement with the NHA to develop the area at an estimated cost of P22 billion. The project, however, would displace thousands of urban poor dwellers. (Photos by Buck Pago / Bulatlat.com)
